Families to Freedom is an organization that depends on volunteer drivers and we urgently need amazing people like you to drive victims to safety.

You also have the option to use our company vehicle for travel.You get to pick how far you want to drive: across town or beyond the Texas border. Exploring America and saving people from abuse - sounds like a dream!
Critera for volunteers: Must be 21 years old, pass a criminal and driving background check, and attend all volunteer trainings.
About Families to Freedom
P.O. Box 1226, Addison, TX 75001, US
Our mission is transport victims of domestic abuse to safety.
Families to Freedom provides free transportation services to victims and their children who have experienced domestic abuse. We make it possible for victims and new survivors to get far away from abusive relationships. Our life-saving services include car rides to domestic violence shelters across the region, road trips to family homes in other states, multi-state bus tickets, and fuel assistance to relocate far away. We serve victims and new survivors across North Texas, East Texas, and the Gulf Coast area. We drive over 900 victims and children each year between two offices located in Dallas and Houston. We rely on the generous support of the community to continue providing these services at no cost to the victims who call us.
